The following amusting quote is from the book "The Quarter Horse" written by Walter D. Osborne published in 1967:

"The great versatility of the Quarter Horse can be seen in the wide range of events in which boys and girls may compete: calf roping, cutting, reining, barrel racing, pole bending, jumping, Western Pleasure, Western riding, breakaway roping, stake racing, jumping, showing at halter, and showmanship at halter. Indeed, it is rather a delightful irony that the horse that was so valued by that once-upon-a-time brand of cowboy - lonely, grizzled, flat broke, often a trifle ripe to the nostrils and occasionally given to warming the air with an earthy string of oaths - is now a major influence in developing the healthy character, integrity, and devoted interest in horseflesh of our current younger geneneration."
